    I stop here every morning and read whats up. I am not a professional welder I am just a farmer. I usually weld something every day be it a repair or a fabrication except at planting and harvest time. I have greatly appreciated the advise I have received here directly from my post and from others that I have read.
    I would really like to thank Miller for the tape measure and hat they have sent me from participating on their boards as the only Miller equipment I have is a BWE. I sure don't get free items from John Deere dealer and I even have a couple of their planters (only green on the farm!).

    I'm just a hobby welder for my shop and collection of old farm equipment and tractors. Love the hobby and also share part of my time woodworking. I do like the guys here and want to thank Miller.

    I started farm welding when I was 15 and that was 50 years ago. I have never welded as a pro but what I do weld usually stays togeather.

    I built my first welder from a distrubition transformer. I got it from the local power company(try and get a transformer now, libility reasons). All the wiring was stripped off the lamated core and the wire was doupled untill I had the circuler mill area that I needed for the primary, than rewound the core. I had to buy the wire to wind the secondary. It just had one heat and that was pretty hot. The way I got around that was weld untill the base metal was about to burn through than stop and let it cool and weld some more.

    I got my Syncrowave 250 about 1989/90 and brought the Linclon Idealarc sp200 back in 1984.

    I am farily new here and do not post to much. If someone has a question for help, by the time I get on the site the question has already been answered and my answer would be redundit but I will help if I can.
    My long winded answer was yes, I realy like the BB and the guys that post here. So far no smart or sourcastic answere like a couple of other BBs.
    Don't ask me to do a dam thing, I'm retired

    To me This board has turned into my hangout every night for like 2 or 3 hours. To me welding isnt a job but more of sometihng fun. While I was off from school it didnt seem like I was working at all its all jsut fun to me. I really think I was ment to do this. I am sure there are many other people in the same situation as me. Everytime I post I hope there will be someone to add on to what I am saying to make it ether more complete or jsut agree with me. I am still young I guess more of thiese things will come with my age :P
